Tonight’s early game is a 2020 Eastern Conference Finals rematch as the Boston Celtics take a trip down south to take on the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena.

The reigning and defending Eastern Conference Champions Miami Heat have been struggling so far this season. They are currently sitting at 3-3 and are coming off of a 28-point victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Things are heating up for Miami as they are looking to keep their winning streak alive.

The 5-3 Boston Celtics are looking to avenge their 2020 playoff series defeat against the Heat. The green team has won 3 of their last 4 contests, with their one loss coming against a struggling Detroit Pistons team. The Celtics will be looking to get the victory without four-time NBA All-Star Kemba Walker, who is still recovering from stem cell knee surgery.

When these two teams clash, there will not be any fans in attendance; however, cord cutters can find out how to watch Celtics vs. Heat below.
